We have always heard Hindu women convert themselves to Muslims for marrying a Muslim man but in the Mandsaur district in Madhya Pradesh, a 19-year-old Muslim girl converted and tied the knot with a 22-year-old Hindu man on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the girl, Naznin Bano now Nancy, and Deepak Goswami met each other through the TikTok app and their friendship turned into love. They are residents of Kumbhraj in the Guna district.
“We met through TikTok in 2019. I had messaged him on Tik Tok only and then we started talking to each other. I took a phone from him and started calling him but my family members snatched the phone. They also beat up me when they saw the phone in my hand. Deepak lives in the next gully to my house. I need security, I want to stay in Kumbhraj city only,” Nancy said.
Nancy further added, “I got engaged to my aunt’s son in Indore, but I did not like the boy. I had made it clear that I will marry only Deepak. We came here to the temple and got married according to the rituals. Everyone respects me, I feel very good.”
“Her family members used to beat her a lot. She told me that she cannot stay there, she wants to stay with me. Her family members also threatened her that if she talks to me then they will kill her. Later, my wedding was fixed on March 20, 2022, and she asked me that I will not marry anyone. As a result, I did not marry. On May 13, we went to Ahmedabad. After that, I got the contact number of Mandsaur’s Chaitanya Singh Rajput. He asked me to come here and we got married following all the legal procedures of conversion and rituals,” Deepak said.
However, in the last six months, five Muslims have adopted the Hindu religion.
